I'm dealing with a similar situation. It seems like you've definitely turned things around, but I feel that calling it an "exceptional turnaround" could be counterproductive. It should be apparent from what you've accomplished that your turnaround was exceptional and explicitly mentioning it seems disingenuous. I would also omit the part about student government. Its not relevant to your disclosure, and I think you would be better served to highlighting this in your resume / personal statement.

Yeah, I tried to sneak the student body president thing in there as I'm not sure how else I can highlight it. Good luck with your cycle! Hopefully we can both manage to make these positive rather than negative parts of our applications.
